316 Tasting Notes
I’ve been testing out some Tea Forte today. :P My friends mom gave me a box with 5 different flavours. Cause she hasn’t been using them and she knows I’m crazy about tea.
Anyway, this one is actually pretty good. When I opened it, I smelled grape right away, but I guess that’s the plum too.. It’s sweet and fruity with a little tinge of spice and ginger. It’s overall a nice tea.
Flavors: Fruity, Ginger, Grapes, Plum, Spices
Finally decided to try my sample of this. And I remember what has put me off doing that. Coconut. I do not like the coconut. The rest of it isn’t bad, but I can clearly taste the coconut in this and I’m not a fan of it. It was drinkable but will not be having this again.
Flavors: Coconut, Spices
Okay, why did I have to wait until now to re-try this blend? I tried it a long while back and didn’t really care for it, but now that it’s retired, I really love it! They always get rid of the really tasty ones too.. Anyway, I had this as a hot latte tonight and my, was it ever delicious. Its definitely the best ‘chocolate orange’ tea I’ve had! Perfect balance of orange and chocolate in there. It helps I think to steep it in a spacious steeper as well, something about the pu’erh leaves… I don’t know. But I LOVE this. I need to buy more online before its out of stock for good.
Flavors: Chocolate, Orange, Orange Zest
Even though I was positive I wouldn’t like this tea, I finally gave in and tried it just because… And it smelled icky while steeping. I’m not a fan of caramel, so I knew it wouldn’t be great. It’s drinkable though. I’m getting a lot of flavours here. I taste the fruit in the blend, but I also taste the caramel. It has this buttery taste and its a bit sour as well. I have 2 agave in this and it’s okay but I definitely wouldn’t buy this one.
Flavors: Butter, Caramel, Cookie, Fruity, Sour
This was actually disgusting. I bought a to go cup and only had about 7 spoons, the spice was just too much. It was a really strange taste. After that I left it to get cold and dumped it later – in which the smell almost made me gag. :/
I was looking forward to trying this, hoping to find a gingerbread tea I like… The flavour is there, but its very subtle. The powder smells stronger than the tea tastes. I don’t know why. I find this flavour to be more subdued than any of the other matchas. I’ll finish the rest I have, maybe it will be better iced. I definitely don’t dislike it, but its not what I was hoping for.
Flavors: Ginger, Spices
